11/03/11  |  The tsunami in Japan

The 2011 earthquake off the Pacific coast of Tōhoku was a magnitude 9.0–9.1 undersea megathrust earthquake off the coast of Japan. The earthquake is often referred to in Japan as the Great East Japan Earthquake.

It was the most powerful earthquake ever recorded in Japan, and the fourth most powerful earthquake in the world since modern record-keeping began in 1900. The earthquake triggered powerful tsunami waves that may have reached heights of up to 40.5 meters.

The tsunami swept the Japanese mainland and killed over ten thousand people. The latest report from the Japanese National Police Agency report confirms 15,899 deaths, 6,157 injured,  and 2,529 people missing.

This poster was inspired by this tragic event and has been part of exhibitions all around the world to draw attention and raise money for the families of all victims.
